  1. If you are new to quilting, I would suggest you hop over the Lori Kennedy’s site, The Inbox Jaunt. She has a billion tutorials and tips for free motion quilting. I have learned so much from her.

      Hi Bernie,
      Thank you for the tip! I will check out that website. I am absolutely new to the whole arena of quilting on the machine. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I practised FMQ on dolls’ quilts. I haven’t been game enough to try on a real quilt, yet. Echo quilting around the shapes is going to look great. A super cute panel.

      Hi Pam! That is a great idea, practicing on doll quilts. Maybe the new baby will be a girl, and we’ll need to make tons of them! I was just about to get started . . . I’ve been dragging my feet, but it’s time to just jump in. It’s only a quilt! Thanks so much for your sweet comments and visit. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Oh, that is going to be so cute and circles on the sheep will be great with the outlining of everything else. I am looking forward to seeing the progress on this one.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Peggy – I’m a little scared about those circles . . . but I’ll give it a try. I think Ellen’s point about matching thread though makes a LOT of sense. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Super cute panel! Love it! You are way more ambitious than I am, I usually do a grid lol.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Pam! I love doing grids! They are in my comfort zone . . . but I’m trying to step out of that a bit. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I would suggest using a matching thread rather than a high contrast thread. Any mistakes will be much less noticeable that way. Also echoing a few times around the shapes makes them pop. Some quilting inside the shapes is needed just to keep the batting stable. Have fun with it!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Ellen,
      Thanks so much for the suggestions! I appreciate it – I love the echo idea, and I know I can actually DO that. ~smile~ Roseanne
